The number of porch swings at Smale Riverfront Park is about to increase.
The first set were opened in 2013, financed by a $250,000 donation from Dianne and J. David Rosenberg. And the couple has made another, larger, gift for another set of swings.
According to Cincinnati Parks’ spokesperson Manda Hurdelbrink, the Rosenberg’s donated $750,000 for 13 more family-sized swings to be built on the west side of the Roebling Suspension Bridge and south of Mehring Way. The swings will be part of the Great Lawn, which is still under construction.
